    The campus is very inviting. The people are for the most part friendly, especially the ASC staff. The people who work in Corey are some of the nicest people I have ever met. I have made many great friends here who I will keep in touch with for the rest of my life.

    SUNY Cortland is pretty far from home for me because I am from South Jersey, but it's easy to make friends and people are generally pretty friendly here.

    Cortland is a great small town. On campus there are many different things to do and a lot of places to meet with friends. I'm part of a Greek organization and there are always things to do with that. There are numerous club teams to play on, a number of Greek organizations, any club you can think of and there is always something to do when your on or off campus.

    I loved Cortland when I visited and I have fallen more in love with it being there. I consider Cortland my second home.

    I love going to Cortland, for physical education. I make it a point to say physical education because in all honesty, there are many flaws, and some minor drawbacks. I absolutely love most of my physical education classes up to this point, and I have developed my self as a person and put my self in a great position for a career in physical education just by attending Cortland. The campus is great, especially since there is a bus system that brings you to and from class. Now for the problems. Health services is terrible. If you have to go, clear your afternoon because you will be sitting in the office for up to three hours. Residential services may seem nice at first, but if you go to them with any concerns or questions be ready to receive terrible service and to basically be told there is nothing they can do for anything. The food tastes amazing, and there are tons of options, but the meal plan is terrible. For a meal you get an allotted amount of $6.00 and if your food costs over that amount it is taken out of Dragon Dollars. Sounds good so far, but you cannot buy a $6.00 meal. In my opinion a meal would be a decent portion of food with a drink, and in a good scenario a side of some sort. At Cortland, that does not happen. Be prepared to receive terrible customer service from the food company as well, and at first it seems great, but after a semester or two you realize just how badly they rip you off. Also, there isn't much to to do around Cortland, so Syracuse, Ithaca, and Binghamton are your best bet for any kind of mall or something really fun to do on the weekend or in your free time.
